Im hoping those 4 teabags are monster size!
I should probably refrain from commenting here, because I am not a restaurant professional, HOWEVER, from one who loves her (unsweetened tea) and drinks a lot of it, I can say this: I use those large tea bags (look like 3 in. by 3 in., maybe larger) sold at Costco.
I used to fuss with sun tea, or brew it on the stove. No more. I take one of those bags, throw it in a gallon of water, put it in the fridge, and a few hours later it is clear, and refreshing iced tea, or which I always get many compliments, and questions as to how I "brew" such great tea.
I am a northern gal, from NJ originally, so I may use some artificial sweetener, but not much, but always fresh lemons from my trees, or mint, which are available all year long, out here in CA. YUMMM DELICIOUS and very refreshing, inexpensive, and lots of anti-oxidents.
Needless to say, I rarely buy "soda" in a restaurant. I burns me up to pay so much for really nothing, empty calories, and no food value. And, I would never pay $ 1.75 for iced tea, which I can make for pennies a glass.
Now, a decent glass of wine, from one of our wonderful wine producing areas......well, that is another story!
